myLot became like some sort of diary for me...

When I was in my teenage years, I used to write a diary. I wrote down all my emotions, my feelings and my thoughts, or simply wrote about the way I was spending my days back then. In those years, all you could worry about was school, family and little love problems. I loved writing a diary, and now I would want to regain that habit, but unluckily I don't have nearly as much free time. But then I noticed something: even if I can't spend so much time on myLot as I wish, this site and this community became like some sort of a diary. I can tell my experiences, write about things I experienced in the past and something that's happening to me right now, and the wonderful thing is that I can share these things without having to fear the others' opinions like when I was younger. I can reply to others and receive advices from them. And you? What is myLot for you?

Mylot is therapy for the most part. I have not seen my thrapist in months. I can come here and share all my issues and get the help I would get from her here. I can talk to everyone about anything that is going good or bad in my life. I think it works out great for me.

I have never seen a therapist, but I must admit that more than once I thought of looking for a good one. I just didn't know if it would have been the right choice for me, since I'm not that open with strangers and I feared that I wouldn't talk about myself at all in front of a doctor. But if you're telling me that myLot is some sort of therapy and it's working for you, then I won't worry anymore!

Mylot is an outlet for me. It is enjoyable and I get paid also! So I use mylot to write about my thoughts, aggravations, frustrations, and ask questions that I have. I also like catching up with friends and hearing from others. It is nice to get a wide variety of opinions on my discussions. In a way it is kind of like a diary for me but I probably don't use it as a diary. I don't think I write about everything that I would put into a diary except for a few things. I think mylot is better than a diary because of two reasons. One thing is that you get people to reply to your posts. Another thing is that you get paid. I can always use the extra money that comes from mylot. It is also nice for me to come on here and have an outlet. With all the stress of everyday living such as cleaning, bills, money issues, schooling issues, boyfriend issues. I can express my stress and issues and get feedback on them on how to deal with the problems easier and better. I can also get peoples opinions on almost anything.

To be honest, I don't think much about the earning thing, most probably because I'm a newbie here, and I still haven't earned much, so it's like that money still are invisible, right? Like a fantasy. But you're right, myLot it's better than a diary, because you can hear people's opinions and advices on your issues and problems, and some of them may even help you to make better decisions.

I agree with you. For some it has become a diary for them. For others, it has become a venue for self expression, while others use mylot as a place where they get others' opinion over certain topics.

For me, it's a mix of these three aspects, I think. :) I always wished that my diary could answer, when I was a teenager, since I had so many questions in my mind, and since my mom passed away when I was 12, there were question no one could have answered. I wish there were a community like this when I was a teenager!

Sharing experiences is the point of myLot, I think. :) Earning money from having shared your experience is sure great.

To be honest, I didn't put much faith in those who reassured me that I could earn, since I never earned something from online sites, and I joined mostly because this is a community for people all over the world in which you can discuss anything you want, and I wanted to improve my English. The fact that people can actually earn from the site is amazing!

I like it for the same reason! Too bad I haven't enough time I can spend here. I like the fact that I can learn from some discussions and I can find my past experiences in some others... it makes you feel less lonely.
